American Conference Institute\'s 13th National Forum on

ERISA Litigation

Expert strategies for leading in-house and outside counsel on litigating today’s key issues involving benefit plans, plan investments and fiduciaries

Thursday, October 27 to Friday, October 28, 2016
The Park Lane Hotel, New York, NY


The premier ERISA litigation conference’s EAST Coast installment, led by an unparalleled faculty of in-house counsel, federal judges, and the top outside counsel plaintiff and defense litigators and firms.

The latest round of ERISA claims and class actions are more complex than ever and the stakes involved for all parties are exceptionally high. There are huge variations in the types of cases that are arising, as well as substantive differences involved in defending against and managing the various claims. In addition, the best plaintiff attorneys are involved in the cases. Throw in the current ERISA “environment” (including growing ranks of retirementage demographic) and it’s entirely evident that in defending and managing these complex claims, counsel for companies, plan fiduciaries, sponsors, administrators, advisors and insurers face a distinct uphill battle.

Now, more than ever, there is simply no room for error in litigating these claims. In response, American Conference Institute is proud to introduce the 13th installment of the only ERISA Litigation conference that goes the extra mile and brings you the highest level judicial insights and maximum networking opportunities with in-house industry experts.
